Fox shows off Oscar nominees

Nominee Sevigny rails against MPAA board

LAS VEGAS — One of the most fun events at ShoWest wasn’t the gum-removal exhibit on the trade show floor, but Fox Searchlight’s cocktail soiree at the Paris Hotel’s Champagne Ballroom on Tuesday evening.

As Hilary Swank was swarmed by paparazzi, fellow “Boys Don’t Cry” Oscar nominee Chloe Sevigny held court in the corner of the ballroom.

While content that the supporting actress nom would flow a better stream of scripts to her door, Sevigny had other fish to fry: the actress railed against the ratings board and its NC-17 for her pic “American Psycho.”

Meanwhile, Ben Kingsley was chatting away a mile a minute about his pic “Sexy Beast.”

“This pic focuses on the South London crime scene in a similar fashion that Scorsese concentrated on the New York mob,” Kingsley said.

And what about Vegas? “Let’s not get into that. My life has always been a big gamble with a capital ‘G,’ therefore I have never taken an interest in casino gambling.”

Among the other guests sipping drinks included Fox’s Bill Mechanic, Tom Sherak and Nancy Utley, along with Penelope Cruz, Adam Garcia and Sophie Lee.
